Fungus (Scalp Condition)-Hairline Loss Due To Sickness

Tinea capitis, more commonly referred to as ringworm, especially in children, is a highly contagious fungal skin infection that can appear on the scalp and can cause scaling, itching and redness in a circular pattern, along with an uneven area of stubbled hair loss. This fungal infection must be treated by a dermatologist, and usually hair will regrow, says Callender.
